Happy 60th Birthday To Alexanders Of Markethill

Happy 60th Birthday To Alexanders Of Markethill!

Happy Birthday to you…

It’s a little late but it’s most certainly still worth a mention on our blog, a very Happy 60th Birthday to all the team at our good neighbours at Alexanders of Markethill!

Established by Norman Alexander and his good wife way back in 1954 in the towns ‘Market House’, the business is today a household name not just in County Armagh, but throughout Northern Ireland and indeed much of the Republic of Ireland. All of us in Markethill should be rightly proud and celebrating this fantastic family owned business that has done so much to put our small town on the map and contributed to the development of our community.

Norman, a gentleman, deserves much recognition. So too his son and daughters who have very capably grown and extended the concern into the vibrant business it is today. We at Dalzells of Markethill salute you as such and wish you all every success for the many years yet to come!

Indeed, were it not for Alexanders of Markethill, we ourselves might not exist. For it was 1954 that a clearly very wise and perspicacious Norman Alexander took on to his staff a young and ambitious Noel Dalzell from Hillocks’ Merchants in Armagh! Who, two short years later in 1956 established Dalzells of Markethill with his good wife Evelyn with her ready experience gained from Walkers Department Store in Armagh. Not forgotten, across the road.

Best wishes and continued success 

From all at Dalzells of Markethill

Merry Christmas And Happy New Year From Dalzells!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all at Dalzells

Christmas & New Year 2014

It’s New Year’s Eve once again, time does seem to fly but there’s soo much to look forward to in the year to come. We at Dalzells hope you all had a merry and peaceful Christmas and that the big fella in the red suit brought you everything you wished for! Most especially at this time of year we think of and express our thanks to you, our loyal and growing customer base.

A special thanks goes out this year to our long standing and faithful employee Kenny Chambers who retired this Christmas Eve aged 72! Kenny will be known to many having served our customers in exceptional conduct as a delivery driver for nigh on twenty years. We wish Kenny every happiness for the future.

It would appear that the uncertainty in retail (and the economy at large) of the last few years is now cautiously behind us all, although we are certainly not complacent, many new challenges will undoubtedly lie ahead of us but we have much to look forward to. The last year saw us purchase the former Northern/Danske Bank premises adjacent to our store thus alleviating parking in the town and allowing for future expansion in the coming years (stay tuned). Therein we successfully launched the Dalzells Amazon and Dalzells Ebay Store which 6 months later has a Positive Feedback Score of 99.8% from nearly 500 hundred reviews! Our Online Bed & Mattress Store has continued to grow with a host of new exclusive brands including Harrison Beds, Hypnos, Breasley and Jay-Be Guest Beds. We even managed to finally update the store signage after nearly thirty years!

The Year To Come…

A busy year ahead awaits us at Dalzells. further new signage will go up in January at our warehouse at the top of the Main Street, shortly followed by further new signage and building wraps at the shop itself. Following the successful trial of our new bed themed van livery all the remaining vehicles will be similarly styled over the coming months.

Online, our New Electrical Website is now complete and will go live in March following the addition of many thousands of products! While a new lead domain (Holding Page already up), will go live in February.

There are of course other things in the pipeline but some things will have to stay close to our chest a little longer 😉

As always, our primary endeavour in the year ahead will be to continue to deliver the very Best Deals, Brands and Unbeatable Service to all our wonderful customers!

Christmas 2013

It’s Christmas Eve once again here at Dalzells and a timely flurry of snow has just fallen outside. How quickly this time of year comes around and then passes into memory. Once again we at Dalzells have much to be thankful for and as such we would like to say thanks to you – Our loyal and still growing customer base. We deeply and sincerely appreciate your continued support and custom!

In what has been a difficult year for many in retail we’ve been in the privileged position to be able to expand. This has seen two new members of staff join our team in Nigel and James in addition to a sixth delivery vehicle. More recently we also took possession of a new warehouse that has ample room for further expansion as we move forward.

Meanwhile our Home Entertainment Store became the first Registered Digital Institute (RDI) Accredited Retailer in the UK in the same month that they also became a Sony Retailer and our online Bedding & Furniture Store became stockists of luxurious Royams Recliner Chairs. We even managed to get on the telly as the an ‘Official Supplier’ of Kitchen Appliances to ITV’s Peter Andre 60 Minute Makeover!

We’ve also been able to give a great deal back to the local community through our Shirt Sponsorship of Portadown Football Club, Banbridge and Armagh Rugby Clubs.

The Year Ahead…

There’s much to look forward to in the year to come, our Multi-fuel Stove Showroom is to double in size again thanks to a generous manufacturer and our Beds & Furniture Store is to relaunch online with a massively improved and extended website following its highly successful beginning.

Most importantly though we’ll continue to strive to bring you the Best Deals, Service, Brands and Technology from a local business that appreciates you custom!

Dalzell’s of Markethill are proud to announce that we will have come to an agreement to continue and extend our sponsorship of Portadown Football Club for the next three years as an ‘Associate Sponsor’ in partnership with Samsung!

Dalzell’s of Markethill have had a close association with Portadown FC for more than 20 years as both a sponsor and within the boardroom through our late founder Noel Dalzell who served as the Club President throughout this time until his recent passing. Members of the Club’s Board and Management were among his closest friends and we are proud to continue this fine tradition well into the future and with every wish of success!

Samsung has become a familiar face in the home over the last decade from their increasingly popular Kitchen Appliances to their market leading Smart TVs.

Dalzells of Markethill – Pay On Time Supporter!

Pay On Time Supporter Northern Ireland

Responsible Business

As a family business that takes its responsibilities to its suppliers seriously and with a number of wholesale customers of our own we know all too well the importance of prompt payment.

As such we are pleased to announce that we have become a proud supporter of ‘The Pay On Time’ campaign and we have committed ourselves to the principles it upholds! We hope that this draws a line in the sand to all too often poor excuses. Any business can have cashflow problems from time to time but late payments can have a domino effect on the wider community, meaning jobs and families.
